Oxygen Carriers: Kinetic Analysis

CaSO4

CaSO4 has the largest oxygen carrying capacity among all the currently proposed carriers. The oxygen ratio is 0.4706 for CaSO4-calcium sulphide (CaS), much higher than that of many other metal oxides such as CuO-Cu2O, NiO-Ni, and Fe2O3- Fe3O4. Calcium sulphate is a relatively stable material. It is a widespread natural resource and therefore the cost would be quite low even if the demand is high.
Through the thermodynamic analysis, it seemed that CaSO4 can be used as a promising oxygen carrier for chemical looping combustion.
High heating rate leads to the increase of the initial reacting temperature. The initial reaction starts from 830 ℃ with heating rate of 5 ℃ /min, 930℃ with heating rate of 20 ℃ /min.

But no substantial connection was found between the lowered peak temperatures and ratio of SiO2 added. The reaction rate (such as Rmax) is increased during fuel gas-CaSO4 reaction.
The addition of SiO2 as a binder promoted the conversion of solid reactant (CaSO4) in the reaction with fuel gas at relatively low temperatures. The maximum reaction rates (Rmax) of pure CaSO4 with CH4, CO, and H2 were 1.97×10-4, 5.01×10-4, and 1.04×10-3 s-1 at 840 ℃, which was considerably lower than the value 1.37 ×10-3 s-1 of CuO-based oxygen carrier at 850 ℃. But for 13.5 wt % SiO2-supported CaSO4, the value of Rmax increased to 1.24 ×10-3, 9.91× 10-3, and 3.95 ×10-3 s-1, respectively.
The addition of SiO2 as a binder also promoted the conversion of solid reactant (CaSO4) in the reaction with fuel gas at relatively low temperatures.
The maximum conversion (Xmax) of CaSO4 was limited to 27.24%, 54.45%, and 89.12%, respectively, for CH4, CO, and H2. When 13.5 wt % SiO2-supported CaSO4 was used, Xmax increased and became 90.87%, 94.50%, and 100%, respectively. This indicates that SiO2-supported oxygen carriers can be used at lower operating temperatures, avoiding the decomposition of oxygen carriers with the release of

    At 1020 °C, which is close to the lower limit of the welds’ S-L range, the ductility of the welds increases to 0.00493, which is very close to the Δε (0.00508) during welding. The above result indicates that (Δε-P) is very small and cannot trigger the continuous expansion of hot cracking. The susceptibility of hot cracking declines…

    3.1 Cure characteristics of CIIR with accelerated sulphur The cure characteristics of CIIR with an efficient type of accelerated sulphur (EV) system at different vulcanization temperatures are depicted in Figure 2 and Table 2 respectively. The EV system used here particularly to reduce the set properties at elevated temperature as it possesses relatively less polysulfidic linkages as compared to the conventional sulphur vulcanization (CV) system. It can be seen from the figure that the vulcanization curve at 160°C has achieved the highest rheometric torque within 12 minutes of curing followed by a cure plateau region up to 35 minutes. Afterwards, the rheometric torque decreased due to reversion. The reversion is a well-known phenomenon observed…

    Study has investagated by [227] that reported a comparative study of high-alcohol-content gasoline blends in SI engines. It compared ethanol, butanol, and ABE as a fuel blends for internal combustion engines. The results indicated that: (1) E85 has the highest peak in-cylinder pressure and most advanced combustion phasing, while B85 has the lowest peak pressure and most retarded phasing. The longest ignition delay of B85 is mainly because butanol has the low vapour pressure leading to relatively poor evap-oration. Ignition delay and combustion duration decrease with increasing the equivalence ra-tio; (2) Compared to pure gasoline, all three…

    4.5: Effect of feed flow rate (Fgr) on yield. Gas oil – y1 (wt %), gasoline – y2 (wt %), light gases – y3 (wt %) and coke - y4 (wt %). Operating Conditions: Tf = 600K; Trg = 960K; Fgr = 33.9Kg/s: 5: 67.8Kg/s; Frc = 480Kg/s. 4.2.5 Effect of Catalyst flow rate (Frc) on product distribution Increase in the catalyst flow rate means the catalyst spends less time in the riser, reduction in deactivation of catalyst, catalyst average activity in the riser will be higher and the cracking reactions will be more intensive. These will lead to an increase in the conversions of gas oil and subsequent increase in the yield of the products.…

    At the dye concentration of 1x10-5 M, 99.7% degradation could be achieved with aqueous CR at room temperature (~300C). The degradation decreased to 80% and 71% for aqueous CR of 1x10-4 M and 1x10-3 M concentrations respectively. The decreased degradation of the dye with increasing concentration may be due to (a) high dye concentration may act as an inner filter which shunts the photons away from the LDH surface, (b) may lead to the non-availability of oxidative free radicals associated with the degradation process and (c) most of the dye molecules get adsorbed on the LDH surface blocking the active surface sites in the LDH. The maximum photodegradation efficiency was obtained at the dye concentration of 1 x 10-5 M. 3.11.4. Recyclability of 2:1 Co/Ti LDH After each degradation cycle, the LDH was separated from the reaction system, was regenerated by washing it three times with de-ionized water followed by drying,…

    As the gases expand, the pressure rises and forces the exhaust gases to escape from the nozzle. This is known as exit velocity. The elevated exit velocity, in turn, raises the specific impulse of the motor [7]. Besides Al, boron is used as metal fuel. Boron is a high energy fuel with lighter weight than Al, but it cannot be burned very efficiently in combustion chamber.…

    Compositional dependence of D.C. Resistivity DC electrical resistivity of the Co-Cr nano ferrite system was found to increase from 1.4 x 106 to 46.2 x 106 Ω-cm at room temperature i.e. 300K with the increase in Cr concentration from 0.0 to 1.0 as summarized in Table 1 and is evident from fig.2. These values clearly signify that the resistivity in Co-Cr nano ferrites is increased by nearly 40 times to that of pure Cobalt ferrite with increase in dopant (Cr) concentration from 0.0 to 1.0. Co-Cr nano ferrites with such high resistivity that leads to very low eddy current losses are desirable in electronic inductors, transformers and electromagnets. The variation of resistivity with Cr concentration X at some specific temperatures 570K, 670K and 770K were shown in fig.3 and the values are summarized in Table 1.…

    The dielectric loss factor was the most influenstic parameter in this microwave spectrum. The loss factor values increased as a function of frequency and slight modification in spectrum on changing the solute concentration. The ε˝ values obtained in our experiments are almost similar to our earlier work[43]. Above 8GHz the frequency dispersion spectrum of ε΄& ε˝ were superimposed with each other. The spacing between the dielectric values in dispersion spectrum could be attributed to the relative percentage of solute-solvent interaction which showed significantly more clustered structure than either stearic or stearic – nhexanol formation.…
